Question: Are we able to opt into online learning for the start of the year and then transition to in-person learning later? How frequently will students have the option to switch between the instruction methods?

Answer: Students are not locked into their elected instruction method from the start of the school year.

Due to the everchanging situation regarding Covid-19, most districts have said that parents will be allowed the option to have their student(s) switch between face-to-face and virtual learning at different points in the year.

Most districts have stated that transitions between instruction methods can occur only at the end of a grading period.
